Rustoleum appliance epoxy. Home Depots got it in 6 colors. White, black, silver, almond, ivory, and a nasty green

x2 for the appliance epoxy. Cheapest way to get a nice, durable paint job.

And if you want to go custom colors, use zinc chromate on the bare aluminum once the prep work is done and shoot it with acrylic urethane. You'll never get that paint of LOL.

I normally use appliance epoxy or PPG acrylic urethane. Both are stupid tough. Let the epoxy cure for about a day and a half with out moving it.
